    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at Magna International full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Good benefits and training opportunities. This is a place to cut your teeth at a professional level but the opposition to change is very real.

    Cons

    Buddy system in full swing and much is done for looks with no real effort towards improvement. In the production divisions everything goes through corporate which is staffed with many people that have never worked in a division so you are bombarded with pipe dream requests and demands and then held to an impossible standard.

    Advice to Management

    Understand that the work of others is what runs a division and understand work life balance.
